Clinical trials

The European Union Clinical Trials Register   allows you to search for protocol and results information on:
  • interventional clinical trials that were approved in the European Union (EU)/European Economic Area (EEA) under the Clinical Trials Directive 2001/20/EC
  • clinical trials conducted outside the EU/EEA that are linked to European paediatric-medicine development

  • EU/EEA interventional clinical trials approved under or transitioned to the Clinical Trial Regulation 536/2014 are publicly accessible through the
    Clinical Trials Information System (CTIS).


    The EU Clinical Trials Register currently displays   43935   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7309   are clinical trials conducted with subjects less than 18 years old.   The register also displays information on   18700   older paediatric trials (in scope of Article 45 of the Paediatric Regulation (EC) No 1901/2006).

    Phase 1 trials conducted solely on adults and that are not part of an agreed paediatric investigation plan (PIP) are not publicly available (see Frequently Asked Questions ).  
     
    Examples: Cancer AND drug name. Pneumonia AND sponsor name.

    E.1.2Term Alzheimer's disease
    E.1.3Condition being studied is a rare disease No
    E.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    To evaluate the efficacy of PRX-03140 as compared to placebo
    on cognitive function as measured by the change from Baseline
    in ADAS-Cog/13 score in subjects with Alzheimer's Disease
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    • To investigate the effects of PRX-03140 on clinician and
    caregiver-based impressions of change (CIBIC+)
    • To investigate the effects of PRX-03140 on measures of
    behavior and Activities of Daily Living (ADL)
    • To investigate the effects of PRX-03140 on semantic and
    working memory, verbal fluency, processing speed, executive
    function, attention and concentration, using the
    Neuropsychological Test Battery (NTB)
    • To assess the safety and tolerability of PRX-03140
    • To compare the efficacy and safety of PRX-03140 to donepezil
    • To compare the efficacy and safety of donepezil to placebo
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    • Men or women with a clinical diagnosis of probable AD in
    accordance with NINCDS-ADRDA criteria
    • MMSE score 16 to 24 inclusive at Screening and Visit 2
    • Age ≥50 and ≤90 years
    • Brain CT or MRI scan consistent with a primary diagnosis of AD within 12 months prior to Visit 2
    • Neurological examination without focal deficits (excluding changes
    attributable to peripheral nervous system disease, trauma or
    congenital birth deficits)
    • No history or evidence of any other CNS disorder that could likely
    be interpreted as a cause of dementia: e.g. cerebrovascular disease
    (stroke, hemorrhage), structural abnormality, epilepsy, infectious or
    inflammatory/demyelinating CNS conditions, Parkinson’s disease
    • No diagnosis of possible, probable or definite vascular dementia in
    accordance with NINDS-AIREN criteria
    • No history of significant psychiatric illness such as schizophrenia or
    bipolar affective disorder that, in the opinion of the Investigator,
    would interfere with study participation. Subjects with major
    depressive disorder (according to DSM-IV-TR) successfully treated
    with a stable dose of an antidepressant for at least 6 months prior to
    Screening may be considered for the study
    •No evidence of the following: current vitamin B12 deficiency, positive syphilis serology, positive HIV test, or clinical thyroid disease associated with abnormal thyroid function stimulating hormone (TSH) levels. Randomization may be offered to subjects with adequately treated thyroid disease or mild abnormalities in TSH levels without clinical consequence
    • Cognitive tasks prescribed for cognitive rehabilitation and performed under medical supervision are prohibited for 6 months prior to Visit 2, as well as for the duration of the study• Ability to comply with procedures for cognitive and other testing,
    and to attend all scheduled study visits
    • Subject lives with, or has substantial periods of contact with, a
    regular caregiver who is willing to attend all visits, oversee
    compliance, and report on subject’s status (Note: a non-cohabitating
    caregiver must spend sufficient time with the subject so that in the
    opinion of the Investigator, the caregiver can reliably assess
    cognitive function, ADLs, and report on the subject’s compliance
    and health. As guidance, the ability for a caregiver to meet the
    expected responsibilities for this study would normally require
    spending at least 7 hours per week with the subject.)
    • Signed informed consent by the subject (and legal guardian, if
    applicable)
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    • Any co-morbidity or condition that, in the opinion of the
    Investigator, may interfere with the assessments and procedures of
    this protocol
    • Current or recent history (i.e., within 5 years prior to Screening) of
    drug (with the exception of nicotine) or alcohol abuse or dependence
    as defined by DSM-IV-TR criteria for substance-related disorders
    • Clinically significant laboratory abnormalities, including:
    o Positive Hepatitis B or C serology
    o ALT and/or AST, values >2.5 times the upper limit of
    normal (ULN)
    o Total bilirubin >1.2 x ULN (unless documented evidence
    of Gilbert’s syndrome).
    o Serum creatinine ≥2.0mg/dL (or calculated creatinine
    clearance < 30mL/min)
    • The use of any investigational drug within 30 days of Visit 2
    • Intolerance or allergy to AchEIs (in the opinion of the Investigator)
    • Use of acetylcholinesterase inhibitors (AchEIs) for AD for >1 month
    • If subjects received an AchEI <1 month, the AchEI must have been
    discontinued ≥2 months prior to Visit 2

    • Clinically significant ECG abnormalities (including QTc value >480
    msec in men or >500 msec in women) in individuals not on pacemakers
    • History of myocardial infarction or coronary artery bypass graft
    within 3 months of Screening, uncontrolled symptomatic atrial fibrillation or symptomatic ventricular arrhythmias
    • History of uncontrolled seizure disorder within 12 months of
    Visit 2
    • Use of St. John’s wort, kava kava, ephedra, ginkgo biloba, or other
    psychoactive herbal medications within 2 weeks prior to Screening
    • Use of the following prohibited medications: any MAO inhibitors,
    bupropion, fluoxetine, paroxetine, quinidine
    • Prior receipt of PRX-03140
    • Planned surgery during the study period necessitating general
    anesthesia
    • History or presence of gastrointestinal, hepatic, or renal disease or
    other condition known to interfere with the absorption, distribution,
    metabolism, or excretion of drugs
    • Any malignancy within 3 years of Visit 2 (exception: basal or localized squamous cell carcinoma of the skin or cervical cancer in situ, or well circumscribed carcinoma that has been completely surgically excised)
    • Pregnancy or lactation. Women of childbearing potential and
    sexually active non-vasectomized men must agree to use a barrier
    method of contraception during the entire study
